Today, Sacramento producer Tynethys and Indie rap artists Main Attrakionz release a new video for “Strawberry Letter 316” a track off their latest self titled mixtape Main Attrakionz x Tynethys. “We got lit in two different cities(Sacramento,CA and San Leandro, CA) with 2 different cameras on the same day to bring you this vid,” Tynethys explained.

To hear him tell it, Sacramento’s Tynethys’ (pronounced “Teen-theez”) musical style is like “selling crack in a Sub-Zero outfit.” For the MC/producer, Mortal Kombat is just one of his inspirations, along with rap heroes Mac Dre, Kid Cudi, Hasalah, C-Bo and T-Nutty. Producing and writing his songs in the hours between midnight and sunrise, Tynethys is a jovial, pensive creator with a stoner’s laugh and street vernacular. Tyne’s style is a fuzzy free-form that speaks not only to his worldview from his bedroom, but many like him. With the forthcoming Thyluxe Edition follow-up to last year’s Lost Angeles album, Tynethys believes he’s hitting his best stride. “I feel like it is the truest representation of me. I did it without trying too hard.” Besides his own work, Tynethys appeals to many collaborators. On October 22, he will release a project with Oakland duo Main Attrakionz. “I really fucked with these dudes. They came to Sacramento, and I literally showed up at their hotel room with a lab,” recalls T.P., who arrived with a portable studio. Having opened for Kendrick Lamar, Raekwon and Evidence, it’s only a matter of time until Tynethys transports his sound around the globe.
